Free family event at Magnolia Bluff in Rock County, Wisconsin, June 21
Online Staff Report
BRODHEAD, Wis. — Families are invited to discover Magnolia Bluff County Park, one of Rock County’s hidden treasures. Saturday, June 21, share a potluck meal, meet new friends, enjoy special children’s activities and soak up the spectacular view from the second-highest point in Rock County.
A portion of the park is designated as a State Natural Area, for the purpose of protecting the native landscape. At Magnolia Bluff, that includes the state-threatened Kitten Tails plant.
Kevin Kuwala, special guest, will talk about the volunteer efforts to restore this and other native prairie and savanna plants in the park. Children’s activities will be provided by Lena Verkulien, director of Welty Environmental Center.
Meet at Magnolia Bluff at 12:30 p.m., Saturday, June 21. The park is at 4002 N. Croak Road, Evansville, Wis. Bring something to share: cold sandwiches, a salad, side dish or dessert, and your own plates and utensils. Lemonade will be provided. Some picnic tables are available, although guests should bring folding chairs. E-mail Carol at email@example.com to sign up for this free event.
The event is sponsored by the Lower Sugar River Watershed Association (LSRWA), a volunteer organization dedicated to the care and enjoyment of the area’s water resources.
